#MusCake day: A celebration of heritage and cake!

If you follow Culture Themes on twitter you may have picked up that their is quite a buzz about today. Have you seen the #MusCake hashtag being shared? Well let me explain a little more…

Culture Themes is a network, a  ‘multinational group of museum professionals’ who work together to share their passion for a promoting and preserving museums. Each month a particular topic is chosen to help focus discussions, photographs and tweets. In the past these have included museum memories, outreach and even socks (I kid you not!).

We are more than happy to get involved in this – especially when it involves one of our favourite things – cake!

So there is the obvious, the cake we sell in our restaurant but that is too easy. Let us show you another example of Charlecote’s love of cake…

A replica of our Elizabethan Gatehouse was made in cake form to mark the anniversary of Charlecote being acquired by the National trust. Here photographed are the Fairfax-Lucy family in 1996.

Charlecote has been depicted in many cakes from the wonderful Gatehouse above to these which were created by one of our House Elves – Judith.

Cakes to represent the many different elements of Charlecote Park including wildlife, picnics and conservation!

And don’t forget, we are often busy cooking our selves! You can often see cook creating tasty treats in the Victorian Kitchens – sometimes sticky buns or welsh cakes. Why not take a look at her recipe book which is sold in our shop too?
